Manchester United have officially appointed former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho as their new manager. He signed a three-year contract, according to the club’s website.
The Portuguese has long been linked to a move to Old Trafford after being sacked by the Blues in December and succeeds Dutch coach Louis van Gaal, who was sacked last week after failing to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.

The only odd thing about appointing Mourinho is that we didn’t do it three years ago when we had the chance.

To those unsure about Mourinho @ United – remember his lightening quick, counter-attacking Madrid side.
